This week marks the first day of school for most of the kids in our town. At least once a day I hear the words, "The summer went so fast."
Since it's just me and Dan these days, and our jobs are on the same schedule year round, the beginning of school doesn't mean much of a change for us. Except that our street gets kind of busy in the mornings and mid afternoon, given that we live a block from the high school.
So when I hear, "the summer went so fast," I'm inclined to think to myself -- but it's not over yet!
I haven't grown tired of watering the garden. Water aerobics classes will be held outdoors for another couple of weeks. I haven't made it through my summer reading list yet. And as bad as I feel for the kids who have to go back to school so ridiculously early -- my summer is still going!
Over the weekend, I gathered up some cucumbers from a friend's garden (mine got pushed out by the zucchini) and whipped up some refrigerator pickles.
I cut some in slices and some in spears.
I love the colors purple and green together.
I'm not crazy about pickles, but Dan is. And I'm glad he is, because it was a lot of fun throwing these together.
Are you still having fun with summer?
